#The Wanderer [Japan]

The third and final leg of #TheWanderer continues around the world to Japan.

The third and final leg of #TheWanderer continues around the world to Japan. Pro skier and adventurer, Kalen Thorien is joined by local ambassador, Kiki, who together follow the path of the water from its source in the lush green mountains, into the jungle-like valleys, and ending at the sea. In addition to mountain biking and stand up paddle boarding, the duo explore the rich culture of Japan by backpacking 40km of the Shinetsu Trail, visiting shrines and temples along the way. Like the roots of a cedar tree, Japan's traditions run deep throughout the centuries. It's less about accomplishment, and more about attaining the journey. Stillness in itself is an adventure. Rather than going all out, we go in, seeking the unknown.

Out In The Sierra

Kalen Thorien, professional skier/adventurer, on a 270 mile, solo high traverse in the Sierra Nevada

Kalen Thorien, a professional skier and adventurer, decided to spend her summer on a 270 mile, 18 day, solo high traverse in the Sierra Nevada, a mountain range in the Western United States. Your immediate question is probably “Why?”, well, Kalen probably says it best, “We spend a lot of time seeking answers, hoping for outside forces to propel us into an elevated realm of thinking, the simplicity of a walk in the woods can provide the impermanence that we so often overlook. Out there it is uncluttered and simplified.”

Guilt Trip

A climate change film with a skiing problem

The only thing greater than this group of skiers' desire to claim a first ski descent on Greenland's second highest peak is the size of their carbon footprint to get there. Loaded with guilt, they decide to bring along renowned glaciologist, Alun Hubbard, whose hypothesis, if proven, could rewrite popular projections of global sea-level rise. However, the entire expedition is put in question when they arrive in Greenland and discover their objective is beyond the range of all available aircraft.
